A programmable hardware board that allows you to
develop blockchain applications and deploy it in space
Have a great idea for a blockchain application that can be used in space? Turn your dream into a reality with our open-source demo hardware board – SpaceChain Callisto. It is pre-installed with a dual operating system ━- SpaceChain operating system (SPC OS) and Linux OS ━ to enable developers, like you, to design on-orbit blockchain applications that can be used and deployed in space.
What makes this hardware board more unique is that it is configured to be similar to our on-orbit payload that was installed in the International Space Station (ISS) in December 2019. While the application is not connected to the ISS, you can still create your dream application, and run tests and simulations through your computer to evaluate if your application will actually work in space. Best of all, it is open-source, enabling you to develop your blockchain applications more easily.
The SpaceChain Callisto is equipped with ZYNQ FPGA and integrated with a power supply system, DDR, NAND flash, TF card and Ethernet. In addition, the hardware board comes with 42-pin I/O ports, allowing advanced users to use Vivado to program the board and include functions such as UART, I2C and CAN.
Here are the specifications:
- 128MB NAND Flash
- 256MB DDR3 SDRAM
- 16-bit data bus
- 10/100Mb/s Ethernet
- TF card port: one TF card port
- Debugging serial port: one channel, UART1
- Data transmission channel: One channel, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet port
- Input: One button
- LED: 2 LED lights
- JTAG debugging ports: One 14-pin double-row debugging interface with 2.54 mm spacing
- Extension ports: 3 × 20-pin (60 pins in total) double-row interfaces with 2 mm spacing
